Picked up the TT over the weekend....:thumbsup
Thanks to the owner, Brian, and the Sales Mgr., Andy, of NTS for making 7 weeks of my bike being worked on, go down smoothly.

Recap:
TT: Blew valves on way to upper Wisconsin, which subsequently locked the motor.

Brought bike into NTS for service, in lieu of this, they let me use a 2002 Daytona 955i :thumbsup until it was fixed.

So in that 7 weeks I rode the Daytona to Minnesota, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina and everywhere in between. :thumbsup
Notables were: intro @ Blackhawk, full day @ Putnam, lowside on Wildcat Mtn.:rolleyes, on and around Deal's Gap, and a 104mph speeding ticket (39 over).

I found myself actually looking forward to getting my bike back, but after 3000 or so miles that I put on the Daytona (FOC BTW:D)
I found riding the TT painfully inadequate :( .

Bike for sale!! ;)

That is very sweet that they let you borrow a bike while yours was being worked on. Incredible actually. How did they handle the low side.

Yeah, the Daytona is sweet.

I went down there to pick up my SV from the previous owner who had it stored there. From what I've gathered from him and a couple others, they are quite good. The service guy is supposed to be a wizard with the bandit engines.

I'll be keeping them in mind when I go shopping for the Speed Four next summer/fall. It's a haul for me, but a good dealership is worth a drive. The next closest Triumph dealership is Power Motorsports. Greg (turbospeedIII) said Nielsen's isn't a dealer fro them anymore since they didn't order any bikes last year. Oh well, their loss.

Brian, I say stick with the TT. It's a better track bike!

So far, they said "Don't worry about it" and the like. I offered to make good and replace/repair the damaged components, and still they said "Don't worry about it". So I am going with that.
It was a low speed low side, and only the lower fairing, and alt. cover were affected.....oh yeah, and grover's saddle bag:laughing(which was replaced)

Here's an idea. Keep the TT for the track like previously mentioned and make them a deal on the 955. Hey, you know the previous rider and the history of the bike right?:laughing
